HARPER’S BAZAAR & SWAROVSKI GEMSTONES FOCUS ON DESIGN
Gem Visions Design Directions Inspire Harper’s Bazaar Thailand/Swarovski Gemstones Workshop
Exotic Thailand, with its wealth of jewelry expertise and deep appreciation of the stories inherent in all of nature’s gemstones, formed the backdrop for a very exclusive Swarovski Gemstones Workshop. The brainchild of Harper’s Bazaar Thailand and the Swarovski Gemstones Business, the workshop created a platform for introducing Thai jewelry designers to new and exciting jewelry trends as revealed by Swarovski's team of experts in the latest edition of Gem Visions. Simply everything to do with what is new for 2018.
Particular emphasis was placed on the exceptional and extremely versatile Swarovski Zirconia, this emerging star of created stone and an increasing favorite with international jewelry designers. Unsurpassed in quality anywhere in the world, Swarovski Zirconia can even match a Tolkowsky diamond in brilliance. Mr. Wasit Bandit Damrongkul, the Jewelry Editor at Harper's Bazaar Thailand, was on hand to address the group, taking as his theme the point of view of the jewelry consumer.
During the hands-on part of the workshop’s program, the attending jewelry designers were encouraged to let the stones inspire them, and to let their imaginations run riot in a mini competition. The fantastic designs sketched at the event built on both the trend information from Gem Visions and the various innovative gemstones and created stones available from Swarovski. The winner of this good-natured contest of design know-how will see their pieces published in the pages of Harper’s Bazar Thailand. Watch this space to learn the name of the lucky winner.
